I was searching the net after a good cms system when I stumbled across Magento. Even though it is in the start phase only, I wanted to try it out. And boy did I get trouble! I got all the problems you could imagine.
After uninstalling and installing Magento several times, I updated my WAMP server! Finally, this should do the trick.. but no. I scanned the forums some more. Did all the tricks but then had some problems with my MySql database. Tried once more and success!
My tip to my follow n00bs;
Read the forums. Search the forums. Read the forums. Search the forums. Upgrade your wamp or xampp. Be sure to enable mod_rewrite. Download the pdo_mysql that is linked in the forums. Still not working? Read the forums
If you get an error, there is probably already a post on the subject. Faster to search the forum than wait for a reply
Hope you all will succeed with installing this and try it out. Seems promising
